ADULTS! Why are we inviting cops into marginalized communities (e.g., camps/school/universities serving Disabled/Deaf Youth) to do "know your rights" trainings?

You're setting our Youth up for terrible injustice.

Please stop this & please intervene if you see any announcements.
Cobb Co. doing #KYR+live shooter simulations w #Deaf/#Disabled kids!

This is what NOT to do folks!

Know what Cobb Co did to a real life BlackLatinx Deaf man?

Arrested & deprived him of comm. for 2yrs 8mos
Appointed atty known for shoddy wk
Sentenced him to LIFE!

#DeafInPrison White presenting Deaf/Disabled children pointing guns at a projector screen with a car, people, building, and other visuals while a police officer looks on while leaning against a wall in a dark room.
This is absolutely outrageous!

This is so problematic I don't even know what to say.

A Deaf student was literally snatched up & caged--& will be caged for LIFE by this very dept. His kid--younger than these kids visits him in prison now!

I'm literally ill from this. SMGDH.

The "I can do anything except..." framing in Disability/Deaf communities is ableist.
I know that very few want to admit or discuss this but it needs challenge, intense scrutiny & deep reflection and conversation. Not necessarily here but I hope folks are having these conversations cuz this is harmful.
It runs counter to Disability Rights, Disability Justice and Disability Solidarity precepts and praxis. It allows society to continue to believe that others who are unable to do some things are inherently lacking which contributes to systemic societal marginalization.
